Lauryn Hill Performs “Ex-Factor,” and It’s Electrifying

With her legal troubles seemingly behind her, Lauryn Hill has gotten back to touring, and the reviews have been glowing. Yesterday, the singer shared an electrifying performance from one of the recent concerts: a rousing rendition of "Ex-Factor," with a heavy reggae accompaniment in place of the original, more subdued R&B arrangement.

The nearly 12-minute peformance is worth every second, rising to an intense, emotional finale and proving that when it comes to performing, Hill has still got it.
